An earthquake rocked Pakistan today and its waves were measured in the University of Maine.
ORONO - Pakistan felt the 7.7 magnitude earthquake at about 4:30 pm local time. 46 people are confirmed dead.
University of Maine's seismometer picked up the earthquake shortly after it hit.
"It took about 13 minutes for the first wave from Pakistan to reach Maine," says Alice Kelley from the Edward Bryand Global Center, "and then as the surface waves that travel on the surface of the earth came in, the stronger shaking waves, we saw that continue in large amplification on the record."
